Planet-loving actor Leonardo DiCaprio lent his support to World Oceans Day yesterday by using his social media networks to bring awareness to the Peace Paddle event in Malibu.

DiCaprio took to twitter to say, “It’s World Oceans Day & as I see it, we have 2 options – exploit & destroy, or together we can protect it. j.mp/M8YFD0 #saveoceans”

He expanded the thought on his facebook page, asking fans to take the cause to political leaders.

“Food for 2.6 billion people. Oxygen to breath. Regulating our climate. What else is more vital to our health and well-being than our Oceans? It’s World Oceans Day, so join NRDC & me and urge our leaders to take action to protect our seas.”

Organized by the National Resources Defense Council, the Malibu Peace Paddle was a beautifully symbolic event where hundred of surfers gathered to position themselves in a peace sign in the water. The event was used to heighten awareness for the current state of our oceans, the level of pollution and the dying coral reefs. As you can see in the video below, the event was very successful evening earning them a Guiness Book Record.

DiCaprio and the NRDC are encouraging people to voice their concerns regarding our oceans, in time for the world leaders are meeting for the Rio+20 Summit later this month.
